Manhunt Underway for Escaped Killer 2/3/14
IONIA, Mich. — An intense manhunt is underway for a convicted killer who escaped from a Michigan prison, abducted a woman and fled to Indiana. A spokesman for the Ionia Correctional Facility says Michael David Elliot peeled a hole in two fences with his hands to escape from the western Michigan prison and wore a white civilian kitchen uniform to evade security and blend in with snow. The woman he abducted escaped unharmed while he was pumping gas. Elliot was serving a life sentence for fatally shooting four people and burning down house in 1993.
